Mission Statement - De-Spinning the Pro-Taser Propaganda

Yeah right, 'Excited Delirium' my ass...


The primary purpose of this blog is to provide an outlet for my observations and analysis about tasers, taser "associated" deaths, and the behaviour exhibited by the management, employees and minions of Taser International. In general, everything is linked back to external sources, often via previous posts on the same topic, so that readers can fact-check to their heart's content. This blog was started in late-2007 when Canadians were enraged by the taser death of Robert Dziekanski and four others in a short three month period. The cocky attitude exhibited by the Taser International spokespuppet, and his preposterous proposal that Mr. Dziekanski coincidentally died of "excited delirium" at the time of his taser-death, led me to choose the blog name I did and provides my motivation. I have zero financial ties to this issue.

Taser QotD: "Given the choice, I'll never carry a Taser again."

Taser Quote of the Day:

A police officer [Sergeant Aaron Strahan] who tasered Aboriginal man Kevin Spratt 10 times at Perth Watchhouse has told a corruption hearing that given the choice he would never carry a Taser again. ... [LINK]
...He later added that now following the subsequent events, widespread publicity of the incident and the corruption hearing, he felt uncomfortable carrying what he called a "flawed weapon". "Given the choice, I'll never carry a Taser again." ...

Some learn faster than others...
